The other night i and my fiancee went to a 7 eleven. I wanted to know what the prices were for the coffee because no prices were displayed. I asked the employee, his answer was " they right in front of your face!" Very rude and unprofessional my fiancee told him there wasn't any prices displayed. He then stomped over to us saying " they right there!' When he came to point it out to us he realized there wasn't any price display and said ' its usually right here, i don't know what happened to it" no apology for his actions, so i said forget it , I'll just get a soda. He stomped away mumbling. We then went to the counter and i explained to him that i had 48 cents on my card and the rest in cash. That i needed to get the 10$ off my card . Please don't charge full amount he said OK OK i know what to do. He charged the whole amount. I asked him why did he do that? Now I can't get cash back , he said oh thats what you want ? Then he grabbed a 30cent gum and charged that! Employee told me to leave n keep the soda, my fiancee told him that he was being more than rude and where was his customer service, he told us to get the f out and i told him to shut the f up he then called me a f-ing b
I don't understand this: "i had 48 cents on my card and the rest in cash. That i needed to get the 10$ off my card ."
I see unprofessional behavior on the employee's part, but I see de minimis damages. I'd take this up with the owner of the store and/or corporate.
Nothing in your post describes an injury occurring.
Please DO NOT message or phone me with further questions or comments as the discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public (the only exception to this being for serious prospective clients). If you have additional follow up questions or additional facts to add, re-draft them into a new question and repost it. My responses on this website DO NOT constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship.
There is nothing in your post about your fiance suffering an injury requiring medical treatment. I see no basis for a claim nor a lawsuit.
This is not a Personal Injury question.
Mr. Crosner is licensed to practice law in California and has been practicing law in California since 1978. The response herein is general legal and business analysis.. It is not intended nor construed to be "legal advice" but rather it is analysis, and different lawyers may analyze this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. Oftentimes the question does not include significant and important facts and timelines that, if known, could significantly change the reply and make it unsuitable. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. See also avvo.com terms and conditions item 9, incorporated as if it was reprinted here. In seeking an attorney on this site, beware of limiting your search to attorneys with a 10 rating, and carefully read the AVVO disclaimer regarding their rating system. There are certain factors that are given great weight which do not necessarily have any bearing on an attorney's experience, abilities, and results with certain types of cases. Accordingly, the rating numbers can be misleading. Also beware of basing your choice on the fee charged, as a low fee, depending on the skill, experience and determination of the specific attorney handling your case, could actually have an inverse relationship to the amount actually put in your pocket.
This is not a case for a courtroom. If the Jerry Springer show has a small claims division, it might fit there.
As always, getting quick free answers on the internet is not a substitute for confidential legal advice from a lawyer pertaining to your case. This answer is not intended to be legal advice to be relied on by the asking individual, as legal advice of that level can only be provided after a review of necessary case materials and input from the asking party. Further, no other person should rely on this answer without consulting an attorney as to how it impacts on his or her case. No attorney-client relationship is formed by answering this question.
